Meghan Markle’s make-up artist has thanked the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after joining the couple in The Hague.
Daniel Martin, who won high praise for creating Meghan’s natural make-up look at her 2018 wedding, revealed he has left the Invictus Games in an Instagram post yesterday.
The Seattle-born make-up artist has long been friends with Meghan after meeting while she was filming Suits in Toronto in 2011.
Earlier today, he shared a snap as he took off from an airport in The Hague, writing: ‘Thankyou.’
And yesterday, he dedicated a post to the Duke and Duchess, writing: ‘To witness what Prince Harry created for so many who have served around the world has been a humbling, and remarkable experience I will never forget.’

‘Thank you Harry and Meghan for allowing me to join you on this experience of a lifetime.’
Alongside an image of his pass for the games, he wrote: ‘My father is a veteran, my brother a veteran and my best friend also a veteran.’
Speaking previously about their friendship, Daniel revealed that Meghan didn’t have a publicist, so she personally reached out to Daniel’s agent at The Wall Group when she was in need of a make-up artist.
He said they both had an ‘instant connection.’

‘I knew what she wanted—it was one of those things where, she looked at herself in the mirror and was like, “Oh my God, this is what I always wanted, but I didn’t know how to get there,” he told d beauty website Into The Gloss
The pair then kept in touch and while working on her former blog The Tig, Meghan asked Daniel to give her a helping hand.
Daniel has not been shy talking to the press about his royal connection. In December he told People magazine that Harry and Meghan are ‘loving life’ as a family-of-four, at their $14m mansion in Montecito.
‘It’s about finding that work-life balance now. They’re experiencing it themselves,’ Daniel said.

Admitting that meeting them in Big Apple was ‘so much fun’ and felt ‘like the gang was back together, Daniel said: ‘Harry jokes around a lot, and Meghan is really funny. It was nice to have those belly laughs again!’
‘They are loving life as a family of four. ‘They’ve struck a rhythm as a foursome.’
